RE: Manual water tank heater: just a hose, but it works!

I have also been struggling with the problem of how to keep a water system operational during winter camping. Thanks for the ideas. Miles

RE: brake bleeder tool

Yes, I believe it will do the same job as long as you push sufficient fluid through the system. I like to push enough fluid through to replace the fluid, instead of just bleeding the brakes.

RE: brake bleeder tool

To bleed a master cylinder, rig two connections at the outlets of the master cylinder to two tubes that go back up and over down into the reservoirs. Make sure they are full. Have an assistant slowly push down the brake pedal several times until there are no air bubbles. Having said that, I have only bled master cylinders when I was replacing them. The normal routine of bleeding the brake lines is probably sufficient, unless you have some reason to believe that there is a problem with the master cylinder.

RE: Hello all! First time buyer, 1985 Pace Arrow 31'

Welcome to the forums! There are advantages and disadvantages to owning a "classic" RV. I hope that you are mechanically inclined. Come back to the forum with specific questions as issues arise. Start a list of the brand, model and serial number of everything on and in your coach. You can find a lot of manuals that will make things a lot easier. Miles

RE: How to keep jerry cans from freezing when boondocking?

I use the jugs too. You just have to keep them inside, there is no other way Miles

RE: New and need help with tanks! asappp

You could retain the two tank arrangement, replacing the tanks If needed. Then connect the tanks with plumbing, in effect making them one tank. I think this would be easier and still accomplish your purpose. Miles

RE: Battery load tester?

I got one at Advance. I use it frequently to check the health of some of my lead acid batteries. But it's only one aspect. A battery can be severely depleted on overall capacity yet still test well on a load tester. Miles

RE: Heater Core

Try Best Auto and Motorhome in Arvada. I just had my radiator and heater core done there and they did a good job. The owner, Jack, is a good guy and he will make sure that you are satisfied with the work. Miles

RE: How is the Ford (Class A) chassis supposed to handle?

I'll just add an opinion for when you are test-driving motor homes. I believe that a well-engineered and properly-maintained motor home should essentially handle and steer like a comfortable car. Even my HR still does, and you should expect that when you move into a class A. Miles

RE: Portable Ice Maker

I'm using ours right now. It's made by Igloo. We use it both at home and on the road in the RV. It works well, only cost about $125, and we would buy it again. Miles

RE: Very Scary Situation. What Would You Do?

Leave your RV and move to higher ground. Miles

RE: Do you crawl under your lifted coach

I drive my HR up on Rino Ramps. I have no worries about working under the coach. Miles

RE: Awning repair

The same thing happened to me about 2 years ago. I used Gorilla tape to fix it. The repair only took about 10 minutes. Looks OK and is still holding up with no problems. Miles

RE: Possible Engine Upgrades

I would also get a compression and leak-down test, along with a basic tune up. I believe that a stock 454 has enough power for a 34' motor home for average use. My HR has adequate acceleration and cruises comfortably at highway speeds. However, I don't tow with it, and when I drive it in the mountains I know that I'm going to wind up in second or even first gear. Miles

RE: Somedays just work out..

I could use some of those kind of days. Let me know if you find out how to make them happen. Miles

RE: Alaska, I'm just saying

You are saying that the Alaska Fish and Game Department has screwed up everything? Miles

RE: Class C with excessive heat on floor..help!

Installing a heat shield and some insulation would help. Miles

RE: 1990 Triple E Brake Fluid Reservoir Access - Resolved

The Chevy chassis of my HR has similar problems with access to the master cylinder and reservoir. I measured out the location and cut an access hole in the floor right above the reservoir. I made a cover out of diamond plate with some insulation. The hole with the cover is right under the driver's floor mat so it is not even visible. It only took me a couple of hours and it dramatically increased my motivation to check my brake fluid on a regular basis, so it was well worth it. Miles
